Sib. 4.x: Respacing To Accommodate Lyrics 2
Posted by Steve Freides - 29 Dec 01:43PM
Hi. We own and use Sibelius in several versions on different computers, but I still favor Version 4, which is what I'm using now.

Is there a way to tell it, after I add Lyrics for Verse 2 to a piano-vocal score, to respace the whole thing? The second verse of lyrics usually ends up overwriting part of the piano part's right hand.

Thanks in advance.

I don't remember version 4, but could you search for "Optimize staff spacing".

Otherwise triple click the piano part's right hand and drag it down ...

I think Optimize Spacing wasn't added until about v6 or v7? But that would solve your problem automatically without manually respacing staves.

You might try selecting all and then using Unlock format. Add the lyrics and when done put back the line and page breaks.

Also since you have multiple Sib versions, you could possibly read the score into v7 or8, then optimize, and then export back to v4.
